What does it mean to be a Pacific Rim poet? In this course, we’ll continue our exploration of innovative (& classic) Pacific Rim poetics. Sei Shonagon’s list poems, the serial poems of Nathaniel Mackey and Wanda Coleman’s American Sonnets. Class time will be given to readings (& listenings) of work, as well as writing exercises and discussion. Get a better understanding of your place as a poet in this corner of the world.
